Recently at the Sydney Aquarium the world’s largest publicly created LEGO mosaic was built with the aid of Master Model Builder Steve Gerling. Here you can see a section of the 17,280 6×6 knob spaces waiting to be filled.
And here’s Steve himself working on the mosaic. You can really get an idea of size with him standing next to it.
As a sort of “build-by-number” guide each 6×6 plate has the colors printed on them and the back of the plate tells Steve where that particular plate goes on the overall mosaic.
It takes 622,080 1×1 bricks in various colors to build the entire picture!
If you find yourself in Sydney this year, stop by and see the finished mosaic. It will be on display through 2011.
